Poets, gurus, and sages have espoused the good news of it for thousands of years.
Books and movies have been written and produced about it.
Songs have been sung about it, and people have made a fortune teaching it.
But do you know enough about
it to use it?
I’m talking about the Universal Principle most commonly known as The Law Of Attraction, which may be the most powerful force we can harness.
In New Thought philosophy, the Law of Attraction is the belief that positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences into a person’s life.
The belief is based on the idea that we and our thoughts are both made from pure energy, and that “like attracts like”—that is, that we have the power to create our lives by tapping into the “vibe” that corresponds with what we desire.
At the most basic level, the practice goes like this:
- Everything is energy.
- Everything that exists began with the energy of thought.
- Thoughts create things (people, situations, circumstances, etc.)
So, predominant thoughts & underlying beliefs that drive our actions become incredibly important to pay attention to. It behooves us to become aware and conscious of what is going on in our minds!
This has been in practice, in some form or fashion, for millennia—you can see it in various philosophical and religious traditions. In particular, it has been inspired by Hermeticism, New England transcendentalism, specific verses from the Bible, and Hinduism.
